Subject: Mystery Solved ! Or Not?
I never had the possibility to listen to the radio show because it didn´t cross the atlantic ocean, so I do not know much about the original Shadow character. Here we have a respectable man whose main intent seems to be finding out who killed his father (also a crime fighter of some sort, we are not informed in which way) but accidentally gets involved in the case of the Delthern murder. He obviously has some routine in assuming false identities, has some sort of charme and an air of mystery so that the female lead falls for him and her fiancé is not amused. Gambling debts are involved and a nightclub owner who does everything to collect them (well enough played by Cy Kendall, governor of an island in "Secret Agent x 9"), two possible heirs with problems of their own. The solution, if there is any, seems to be quite conventional to me.

Subject: A very good film well worth watching
The only thing missing is the famous Shadow laugh done best in the Shadow serial.
